So far removing the dependency on dh-autoconf provided me with a few
good presents. It patched a number of autoconf/automake files that were
outdated. From the patches I could then update the source packages. This
involves files INSTALL, missing,  mkinstalldirs, install-sh, and perhaps
a few more  I didn't write down all updates.

>From what I gather, the dh-autoconf package makes the debian patch files
smaller in the majority of the cases by removing some updated files that
the debuilder scripts generated. But since I patch the source at the
same time, there was no problem with bigger patch files, and, the good
part, the upstream source gets updated.

Well, your absence from the bibledit-gtk packaging will be felt indeed.
If you opt to be out of that business, may I thank you for the years you
ensured that the packages got updated. And may I also declare my
intention to probably talk to you in case I am stuck.
